I asked Rachel to take photos of the garden...this is the strawberry bed.
Aren't they pretty? They taste so good.
Something has been nibbling on the bean leaves...
The heirloom tomatoes are doing really well...I weeded this bed today while Tim worked on my mower. I stopped it for something while by the garden and it wouldn't restart...he got it going again, my hero!
Four new beds this year...this one, I think, is squash and peppers. I know our Georgia friends will be surprised how far our growing season is behind theirs!
Our cilantro is flowering down on the other end...it will go to seed soon.
When we moved to our cottage there was a mulberry shrub. Now it is a big tree, with lots of fruit on it! The kids feet are purple at this time of year, and they eat a lot of the berries. I made jam from them last year and it was good, so I may try it again this year.
Robin's nest in the mulberry tree...
Tomorrow, I will try to show you the flower beds...I don't have a lot in bloom right now, though. The echinacea is growing well, and the I have a few black eyed susan's blooming...the feverfew is growing well, as usual and my hydrangea has flowers...they are not in bloom yet though! I love hydrangea!
Well, if I keep talking I will have nothing to post about tomorrow! For those of you who asked, No, I did not go to lunch with my husband! boo hoo. He loaned his truck to our neighbor to use so it wasn't available, and the kids had my van so...no lunchie outie. We did go look at fruit trees though, when our neighbor was back with the truck! That was fun! Maybe tomorrow we can go. The younger set are off to Camp Geezer for the night! They are envisioning lots of swimming for tomorrow! It is going to be hot enough, too!
Lindsay is excited about giving her first riding lesson of the season tomorrow! Abigail is one of her favorites and is coming for a lesson in the new arena!
I just love my family and the busyness of daily life. It's not without it's challenges, but we try to show love and kindness to one another daily. Katy had a beautiful post about this very thing over at her blog today. If you click on her name it will take you there!
